For all residents of Gainburn Crescent, Gainburn View, Gainburn Place, Gainburn Court and Gainburn Gardens to discuss any relevant issues regarding the estate. Given the increase of house-breakings in Cumbernauld and Rogue Traders, the purpose of this is to create some community spirit in the estate, help to warn each other of door step scammers etc., keep each other informed of any unusual activities in the estate (i.e. unusual vehicles or suspicious persons) and alert everyone of any break-ins/attempted break ins or robberies so we can all look out for each other.
Lana Wilkinson whyte
My name is Lana Wilkinson Whyte and I live at "Cruachan" (Number 5 Gainburn Crescent). I am fairly new to the estate (2 years) but have loved every minute of living here. I have great immediate neighbours, and although I have not met and spoken to everyone on the estate at length, those I have met have been warm and friendly. I have been concerned, as I am sure many of you have been, with the number of house breakings in Cumbernauld in recent years and disgusted by the number of door-step scammers at work in the area. I have been thinking about creating a neighbourhood watch for some time and after recent break-ins in the estate and after recent door step "trader" number on the increase given the impending good weather, I thought the sooner the better.
